The Practice was a good legal drama with attention grabbing story lines.
The writers and producers never fell short of the viewers expectations. The show was always ahead of the game in producing 'around the water cooler' topics for the morning after.
I loved the cast and stayed faithful until the end. But it was obvious that the final two seasons were the show's worst. Story lines lagged, and the final season could not survive loosing a bulk of its cast members even with the addition of the infamous Alan Shore.
During its prime, The Practice was definitely the show to watch - and the show to try to top.
